Very good, but too much for just a half hour time slot.
20 March 2016 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When the show begins, Philip Benton (Dick Powell) is working late at the office with his secretary. After they're done, they go to dinner. Over the next few months, the pair become closer. However, you then learn that Philip is married...and his wife is supposedly hopelessly insane and doesn't even recognize him. However, suddenly, the doctors find the right medication and Ann (Joanne Woodward) is now thinking clearly though memories of her past and Philip are all very hazy. The pair need to work hard to get to know each other again.

There is simply too much material in this show for a half hour time slot. I would have eliminated the secretary entirely from the show or stretched it out to an hour or more. As it is, both plots really get the short end of it and the episode, while good, seems rushed and a bit incomplete. Miss Woodward, by the way, it terrific.
